My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

It's about learning how to dance in the rain."

Curing Atheism

Sonshine (9yrs): I don't believe in God any more, just in Ghosts and Goblins.

Me:  Ok, but without God there are no Ghosts and Goblins because God made everything.

Sonshine:  Well, I just don't believe in God now. 

......after a couple minutes of silence.....

Me: You know, if you don't believe in God anymore then I guess you don't believe in Christmas.  Because without God there's no need to celebrate the birth of Our Lord.  So should I call Santa and tell him you're not gonna have Christmas anymore???

Sonshine:  .....deep in thought.....
No, I believe in God!! 



There you have it folks.   Our BRIEF sojourn into atheism.....

I love this kid!!
